I am relatively new to film making. I don't really know what the main purpose of the different adobe products in Production Premium are. When you guys go about editing your video's, which program do you first start with, how do you usually render your movies, and what is the best way to compress your videos? These are all questions that I can't seem to find answers to. Any reply is appreciated. Thank you.
I capture in OnLocation (live) or I use Premiere Pro to capture DV AVI (it is different when I shoot HDV).
I take some of my footage to After Effects to apply certain effects, and I use Soundbooth to clean up audio. I use Photoshop to fix up still images, and sometimes use Photoshop Extended to create simple motion graphics related to stills.
I work on vector graphics logos in Illustrator and pull them into the Premiere Pro titler.
